09/14/2017 - 7:46am Three OL got beat on Higdons

Three OL got beat on Higdons missed cut. If he throttles down it's a three or four yard loss on the play. He has a split second to decide to cut or burrow forward for whatever he can get. I guess I look at that amount of time similarly to batters swinging: is a 35% hit rate really that bad in that situation? Plus higdon is known for his jump cuts once moving, not his standing jukes like Evans.

09/13/2017 - 8:04pm It's still harsh.

Difference on the three plays quoted is the position and momentum of the DL in question. You can't complain about bad calls that don't take into account momentum and then ignore it on this play. They're a yard and a half into the backfield and moving fast when Higdon clears the QB. Even if he sidesteps he probably gets tackled so it's a moot point. Isaac gets to survey the DL for a split second because they've been mostly stood up at that point, and he's peeking to check for LBs. You aren't doing that if a DL is in your face with momentum.

Also is that the correct usage of sealioning? That tends to get dropped on SJW types.

09/02/2017 - 7:24pm A few busts but otherwise great

Looks like the hyper aggressive team we expected. Basically pistol-whipped Florida up and down the field.

I'm thinking Gary is supposed to own the B gap here. That allows McCray to maintain outside contain the same way that Peppers is. The stunt between Glasgow and Winovich should cover the A and B gaps on the left side of the O line. Am I right in thinking that?

09/13/2016 - 11:42am I thought that Gary in that

I thought that Gary in that particular play was to blame. He shoots right at the snap and knocks Glasgow off balance. It appears that Gary should've played his man straight up, because a three man stunt doesn't make a whole lot of sense in this play with the setup they are presenting. You can't expect Winovich to cross three offensive linemen on an extended stunt to get to Gary's original gap. Also we've seen Gary blow stunts before, so it makes sense he has missed another call on this play.

I feel like everyone has forgotten about him (not even listed in everyone's DL 2 deep, even Brian has left him off) despite the fact that he is a solid player and would be starting for most teams. He's going to allow us to rotate Gary, Wormley, Charlton, and Hurst in a way we wouldn't be able to if we did not have him.

Grew up a Buckeye (THANKS MOM!) before going to Michigan for undergrad. If you count grad then I suppose Cornell but they suck at everything except hockey so let's be honest here.

07/04/2013 - 9:40am The list.

Titleist driver (D2 or something, don't honestly remember whichwith a Booyah! graph shaft)

Taylormade V-Steel woods (with the classy steel shafts)

Titleist ZM forged blades (pitch through 3, all one inch longer and 1 degree upright)

Titleist Vokey sand wedge

Oddessey ProType Putter

Favorite clubs are the woods and the 7 iron. I never miss with them. Also that putter is pure gold. Worth every penny. For some reason I can't seem to hit that driver over thirty feet in the air despite the low flex point on the shaft designed for higher shots. Most of my distance is off roll and my drives are essentially immune to wind however I have trouble crossing water off the tee. But my 3 wood is good for at least 250 to 260 so it's not a big deal. The blades are absolute butter to hit well, and red hot pokers to hit poorly.

Unlike OP I've come to appreciate my longer irons, especially that 4 iron, and I occasionally try the Seve Ballesteros approach by using my 3 iron in the trap as practice. And if you are able to get your hands on V-Steel woods you have to get them. I have yet to hit a group of woods that comes anywhere near how they feel to hit.

After the win last year, the MSU team went to our band to mock us before going to their own student section. I got very close and personable (/s) with Jerel Worthy holding that atrociously ugly trophy. Seriously though, who does that? I don't think even OSU has ever done that.

06/16/2012 - 3:44pm True, and given the fact that

True, and given the fact that we really haven't seen the two wide receivers (Darboh and Chesson) who will more then likely see playing time immediately, trying to judge speed of their secondary vs our recievers doesn't seem very meaningful. Although the speed difference of our OL to their DT vs our DT to their OL may actually be meaningful (i.e. games won in trenches, so more athletic line could be the tipping point)

06/16/2012 - 1:52pm 40 times and weight?

Is there a way we can get the 40 times for each of the players on each team, and compare that to their BMI and their weight? Should be interesting to see how we match up with Alabama on a speed basis. I know everyone says SEC is king but I remember them showing the average 40 time for Ohio State when they played LSU, and Ohio actually had a slightly faster average 40. (I think, someone will probably prove me wrong)

why don't you be a sarcastic jackass somewhere else with people who actually give a damn about your opinion

Go back and watch the games. As irritating as Spielman is he did mention that he thought Denard was a better passer when he remained in the pocket.

He's just stating the obvious. That time wouldn't have gotten him top five in the state finals in any southern state pretty much.

But I was there! I had some words with drunk Ohio fans in their fifties who had lost their ability to speak in sentences! DONT YOU TELL ME THOSE GAMES DIDNT HAPPEN.

Do not complain to the OP if you yourself have not attempted something as involved as he is attempting. And this offseason is resoundingly terrible right now so I'll take anything football related I can get. Including watching the Nebraska and Ohio games for the 12th time.

Even though a 3-4 and to an extent the 4-3 under utilize only one main NT, why aren't we getting another NT recruit? I feel like we need another in case somebody doesn't turn out down the road. ( I haven't watched pipkins on film so maybe someone who has can give me the answer to my probably stupid question)

The seniors picked the uniform actually. But Dave Brandon still sucks.
